This may or may not be the third Banana Muffin recipe that I have shared on my website. What can I say? We like banana muffins.

 

The first was Cinnamon Swirl Banana Muffins that have been a total hit and are one of the most popular recipes here.

The next was Banana Cream muffins that are not only packed with banana flavor, but have a cinnamon cream center. They are absolute heaven.

 

As long as we’re talking about bananas, you’ve got to try this Cake Mix Banana Bread. It is seriously one of the easiest recipes I’ve ever made, and the result is delicious!

 

Now on to the recipe!

These muffins have quickly become a favorite at our house. They are great because you can add things to them like chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, nuts, etc. 

 

Or you can make them without and they are just as good. We like to add some milk chocolate chips and call them Chunky Monkey Muffins!

Ingredients

 

  • Butter- You will need softened butter for this recipe. Both unsalted and salted butter will work. To soften butter,  remove it from the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature, or soften it in the microwave.

 

  • Sugar- Regular granulated white sugar works great in this recipe.

 

  • Brown Sugar- Brown sugar is used alongside white sugar because brown sugar tends to make baked goods, like these banana muffins, more moist.

 

  • Eggs- I recommend using large eggs for this recipe.

 

 

  • Creamy Peanut Butter- My family prefers creamy peanut butter, but if you want a little crunch with your muffins, feel free to use crunchy peanut butter.

 

  • Milk- I usually use 2% milk when making these muffins. You can definitely substitute higher fat milks, as well as almond milk.

 

  • Vanilla Extract- I love to use pure vanilla extract because it really enhances the flavor of these muffins. 

 

 

  • All-Purpose Flour- I use all-purpose flour to make these Peanut Butter Banana Muffins because it is a very versatile flour.

 

  • Baking Soda- Baking soda is used in this recipe as a leavening agent to help the muffins rise.

 

 

  • Salt- Salt is used in baked goods to enhance sweetness.

Just made a batch. Delicious! I assume these can be frozen. Also, I would think these could be stored in zip lock bag on counter. Great recipe. Thank you.

? Can I substitute applesauce for the banana. I love bananas, my daughter hates them :( and if so, would it be the same equivalent?
